Under Flyover Bridges: Lagos Vs. Dubai (PHOTOS)
When a flyover bridge is constructed, there are usually areas around them that are left unutilized. An example of such is the vacant space beneath the flyover. These spaces are often either underutilized or used indiscriminately for parking of vehicles, etc.
These spaces under flyover bridges have immense potential. They can be developed into active space for public activities. For instance, they can be transformed into recreational areas or well-organized car parks.
To achieve all these, the area under the flyover has to be illuminated, decorated with theme-based graffiti at certain spaces to create awareness for certain causes, etc.

These spaces can also be used to cultivate some vegetation or greenery. This will contribute to the ecology and environment and acts as a buffer to reduce air pollution as well as contribute to the aesthetics of the street in the day time.
In so many cities around the world, under flyover bridges has been used to achieve different public purposes.

Based on my observation, Lagos under flyover is majorly used for either canteen, loto game (commonly known as Baba ‘jebu).
